Matt Baker tipped to fill Adrian's shoes on One Show

Thursday May 6, 2010

Countryfile presenter Matt Baker is favourite to become the new presenter of The One Show.

Following the shock departure of Adrian Chiles to ITV, the former Blue Peter host will be tried out on the show alongside Christine Bleakley in the next few weeks.

And if all goes well, insiders say the 32-year-old is likely to be offered the job on a permanent basis, the Daily Mail reports.

Other contenders for the job include Richard Hammond, Richard Bacon and Richard Madeley.

Watchdog's Matt Allwright, who along with Paul Merton is currently standing in on the show, is also being considered.

Last month Adrian announced his departure from the BBC after it was decided that Radio 2's Chris Evans would be brought in to present The One Show on Fridays.

He has since signed a £6 million deal with ITV.
